MyWaterLegacyThe Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) encourages water quality professionals to take pride in the work they do ensuring a continued supply of clean water and adequate sanitation for future generations. At WEFTEC® 2016, Paul Bowen, current immediate past president of WEF, launched the #MyWaterLegacy social media campaign.

The campaign, unveiled alongside a video titled “What Legacy Are You Creating?,” promotes mentorship of young professionals and celebrates the contributions of WEF members to the working in the water sector.

During the near century of WEF’s history, many water professionals have passed on their expertise and passion for the field to their children and other relatives, creating families of WEF members and employees committed to the protection of our water resources. The ongoing WEF Highlights My Water Legacy series profiles some of these families and their important work. So far, the articles include  “My Water Legacy: Canhams Forged a Strong Bond, Inside and Outside of WEF” and “Hamlett Family’s WEF Service Spans Three Generations and Five Decades.”
